Who knew that coming home to England after nearly seven years in Portugal would be so unsettling?
Among the changes of the past six months or more was a change of house.
A change in professional direction and some new writing.
Too busy to post here, writing for another blog and visiting the Douro.
The Douro is a great wine region, but also fascinating when viewed rather abstractly, strictly in terms of colour and texture.
Yes, learning Portuguese is difficult, but the people here are the kindest and most helpful to the linguistically challenged I have ever met.
Thinking about starting a new life in a foreign country? Perhaps the story of my experience moving to Portugal will be of some help and amusement.
